Tag Archives: moving to the UK


UK FlagI got my birthday wish.

We got the word last week that we are finally, FINALLY moving.  And it’s happening soon.  Six months of waiting, and we have six weeks to get everything done and get to England.

Even if I don’t sleep for the next six weeks, I’ll get it done.  I’m just so happy to be going!

It’s Official (Mostly): We’re Moving

So a while back I hinted that big things were possibly happening here.  Now that it’s about 99.9% official, I can finally make the big announcement.

We are moving.

To England.

For at least a year, possibly two.

Insert hysterical laughter and excitement here.  I am almost positive my life will become a cross between Downton Abbey and Sherlock (the BBC version, obviously).  And that I will probably hang out with Will and Kate regularly.  Obvs.

We won’t be in London, as amazing as that would be, but instead about an hour or so north.  I actually think it could be the best of both worlds–living in the English countryside, but with easy access to the city for day trips.

The thing is, though, we don’t know exactly when.  We have a rough idea—it will probably be in January—but that’s as specific as it gets right now.  We’re moving because Matt’s company needs him to fill a position overseas, so we’re dependent on them to give us the dates.  That means right now we’re in a little bit of limbo.

But we are so, SO excited.  And so grateful to have this chance to experience life in a different county and be able to travel through Europe and see so many of the cool places we’ve always wanted to see.

Because we’re so excited about this amazing opportunity, we’re trying (fine, I’m trying) to be okay with having relatively little control over the details.  You know, like when we’re actually going.

But we are going.  Soon-ish.  And we have one hundred billion things to do in preparation, and another hundred billion plans in the works for all the things we’d like to do when we get there.

So that’s our big news.  What do you think?
